water damage worked until battery dead
after drying out the phone it worked until the battery died. Will not charge or connect to computer. I would like to put a new battery in just to retrieve my photos and contacts?
have you cleaned the phone out properly with isopropyl alcohol?open the phone up and clean everything in sight. if you don't then the problem may recur. it is more likely that the connector for the computer/charger is at fault or connector 4. if no charge can get to the battery via the dock then no itunes and no downloading of photos!
SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED TO ME.
MY 3G WORKED FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS THEN DIED.
WHEN CONNECTED TO THE MAINS THE apple SHOWS NOTHING MORE ,
BUT MY PC DOESN'T RECOGNIZE IT.
SHALL I BUY A BATTERY AND CHANGE IT SO I LOSE MY WARRANTY?
ANY CHANCE I STILL RETRIEVE MY PHOTOS?
Hi. Never saw the #3 tab on my phone that I keep reading about and there is nothing for me to lift up before sliding cable out. Mine is supposed to be a 3g
